According to APGA, the Deputy Governor had thought that Governor and the party were going to hand over the governorship ticket of the party to him on a platter.

Okechukwu said: “When that didn’t happen, he started behaving abnormally, even to the point of insubordination and dereliction of duties.”

APGA said the Deputy Governor left the party without formally notifying the party or the state governor, adding that the move was uncalled for, ill-timed and ill-advised.
